COVID-19 And it’s effect on everyone and everything

That’s a very good question. In theory, if we don’t renew any of their contracts and haven’t signed any new players by then, we might not have enough players to finish out the season. Strange times indeed

If games can't be played... would the fairest thing be to just start the leagues again next year with the same teams? Struggling to see where the EFL will fit 10 or so rounds of fixtures in before the next season at this rate.

Surely you cannot relegate a team if they still had a chance to save themselves. Imagine if we hadn't beaten Charlton...

I think the focus has to be finishing this season whenever that is. Then they'll have to look at how next season is scheduled, that might have to be a season with reduced games potentially.

Would imagine that games will still be played when they can, even if it meant pushing the last ten games back to August and starting next season 2 months after that. Cant see any way that this season can just be written off.

Just play two games a week. Could finish the season from mid-May to end of June. The playoffs might be an extra week or two for those involved. Maybe start 1 May behind closed doors if possible.

Start next season late and only play each team once I think would be the fairest solution. Obviously the home/away thing will be contentious but if you have seedings and equal home and away games then its easily ironed out.

The only right thing to do is cancel it and start again.

I was thinking maybe we do something similar to the SPL. Play each other once, then play everyone in the same half as you. That way, you can make 28 games (in the PL).

I mentioned this before. I wonder if maybe they confirm it will be played during that time that maybe we will ask to provide short-term extensions. The transfer window surely has to remain closed too.

    • @TeaCider24 Think CT is trying to highlight the inconsistencies, when it comes to criticism of certain players. Rather than actually lay the blame at any one individual.
    • Looking at CT's last picture our Right sided CB was on our Left hand side of the 18 yard box, our RB was in the middle of the "D" instead of getting back into position and our RW was twenty yards behind play. Our entire Right side of defence was AWOL. Howson was caught in two (maybe even three) minds and partly to blame without doubt but three players were not where they reasonably should have been. One being caught out is one thing but for all three to be missing is simply staggering. 
    • Howson clearly didn't cover himself with glory in that goal and was also at fault. Not sure anyone is denying that. But Spence drifted across the entire pitch in the build up to that goal, marking absolutely nobody. He left his man on the left hand side to go stand behind the man he also wasn't marking.
    • Just for diggerlad: First clip is when the attack begins.  The goalscorer is circled and Spence isn't near to him but is near to another Blackburn player   This is a few seconds later.  Howson has left Armstrong and actually changes direction because he has seen Rothwell and he's thinking he is going to run in behind him.   Rothwell doesn't run in behind him and now Howson is our furthest man back.  Both Howson and Spence can see where is.   This is when the ball get's played across.  All Howson has to do is move a few yards and clear the ball but he stands still for some reason, a man caught up in his own thoughts.  Spence does the game thing as well but he isn't in a position to just clear the bloody ball like Howson is.     And who is marking these two players?  That's where our right back should be but because they have to do this stupid man to man marking thing, as soon as the opposition break or beat a man then we are in trouble.  So we can safely say that several players weren't where they were supposed to be but ironically, Spence was actually near to his man unlike some of the others, but he did switch off and that is a bad mistake to make.  It's just that it's far from the only mistake in that sequence.
    • Unfortunately mate there is about 6 other players that will need to be missing/injured before that happens.
